Drake Homes is proud to sponsor another community event that caffeinates entrepreneurs and the innovative startup community throughout Iowa! 1 Million Cups Des Moines is a weekly networking event with an energy you're sure to enjoy.
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you've experienced our company's ongoing interest in entrepreneurship and the Des Moines startup community. We simply love building new homes for people building amazing things. Our entire team is inspired by the progressive energy we feel from so many great entrepreneurs and intrepreneurs throughout Des Moines.
What is 1 Million Cups? 1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Originally established by Kauffman Labs in Kansas City, Des Moines was the first remote community that spawned a dramatic expansion of other community groups throughout the country.
Since pouring their first coffee in 2012, 1 Million Cups Des Moines has had a fraternity of organizers (including our very own Ben McDougal), 100+ Iowa entrepreneurs present, and an innovative community that works hard to accelerate others each and every week. The format is super interactive and easy to like. Each week an entrepreneur shares a short 6-10 minute pitch. For the rest of the hour the 1MC community responds with questions and ideas that at the core, accelerate the presenter in a powerful way. Along with this excellent format, free coffee fosters caffeinated business networking before and after the event.
Whether you're building something to change the world or working to be innovative inside a larger company, we think you'll find 1 Million Cups Des Moines to be an energizing way to break up your week and a cool opportunity to mix and mingle with a special collection of inspiring people.
